5th China South Asia Exposition and China South Asia
Business Forum at Kunming,Yunnan Province, China take place from June 14-20,
2018 and FIEO is participating in the event which has gained huge popularity
over the years. Bringing out the importance of China for the Indian exporters,
FIEO says China has proved to be one of the major destinations for Indian
exports under the current global scenario.
The India-China bilateral trade rose, FIEO says in a
release, by 18.63% to $84.44 billion
last year. A rare novelty of the bilateral trade otherwise dominated by Chinese
exports was about 40 percent increase of Indian exports to China in 2017
totalling to $16.34 billion. India has thus seen a major breakthrough in its
exports to China in the recent past.
China, closer to home, therefore, has proved to be one of the major
destinations for Indian exports under the current global trade scenario and an
obvious immediate alternate to India’s traditional markets USA & Europe.
With an objective to further enhance trade and also encourage small and medium
enterprises to establish trade linkages with China, FIEO is participating in
the 5th China South Asia Exposition, coinciding with the 25th China Import
Export Fair to be held from June 14 to 20, 2018, comprising of both B2B and B2C
at the Kunming Dianchi International Convention and Exhibition Centre. The
China-South Asia Expo will be a good opportunity for Indian businesses and
industry associations, to showcase their products not only to Chinese buyers
but also to more than 80 countries who will participate in the event.
“The huge increase in participation over the last 8 years, itself shows the
popularity of the event and importance of China as a growing market” said Mr
Ganesh Kumar Gupta, President, FIEO. Considering the proximity and the
logistics convenience, FIEO Chief foresees huge potential for exports in the
near future and therefore the Federation has beefed up participation in this
event for 2018.
FIEO President will lead a Pan India delegation of exhibitors and will deliver
an address at the China South Asia Business Forum. Dr Ajay Sahai, Director
General & CEO, FIEO will also address the China South Asia Business Forum.
